NRCTC students who got the doors shut on them today are going to march on the school Tuesday if they don't let students apply.

Meet at the Beckley Campus at 167 Dye Drive in Harper Park in Beckley, WV and we're going to enter the office of Dean Carolyn Sizemore.

For those who don't already know, the school ended registration a week early without notifying students who already had taken out loans and made arrangements for their children.

Contact the Higher Learning Commission. You can find their contact info online. Good Luck to all of you. That's a crazy thing to do, especially financially for New River.

My daughter was told they were registering till 5 o'clock but drove all the way to Beckley this morning just to be put down by some goody2shoes.

She'll be in class this semester whether the learning commission says so or not.

It also said on the website calendar that late registration wasn't over until today. I know of a few people that was turned down this past week as well.

But didn't classes start just this past week?! Wouldn't it make sense to register for classes before they start?! But... U ladies are right they should tell u one thing and do another... Get em'

Make a screen shot of the close date from the calendar and keep it. You may need it in the future. Take screen shots of any other dates pertaining to this in any other area of the website. Document the date when you took the screen shot. Good Luck all of you!

Several people have taken screen shots and posted them on the web and on Facebook. The school went on and changed the information online this afternoon, but it was already out there.

Former MSU Student, I posted a screen shot of the close date on here under Beckley pictures so other people could use it if they need it. Thank you for the advice.

This school is notorious for not knowing what they are doing! They have done it since they opened. I guess with the influx of enrollment since the closing of msu people are now starting to notice.

First off, Carolyn Sizemore is fair and reasonable, she is also a person of resolve and these tactics to harrass, bully, and intimidate are not going to work. Secondly, if you cannot sit down with her and discuss it as civilized people I question whether you are truly ready for college. Thirdly,the Higher Learning Commission will not care and would likely commend her actions. One must plan ahead to perform well and those that are just getting into classes that have already started creates disorder that interrupts learning for those who have planned. I stand by Carolyn Sizemore-a woman who need not hide behind anonymous message boards.

Timothy, you think it's fair to tell students that they can register until 5 p.m. and then turn them away at the door?

Maybe since with the influx of students from the closing MSU they have had such an large enrollment this semester that the classes filled up?! The do have maximum number of seats allowed to each of those classes?! If they fill up... Ure outta luck!

Posting to Facebook is fine too. However a paper file is handy to have. Especially if you need to retrieve it in the future quickly. We have a tendency to post a lot on Facebook and this event will be pushed down as time goes on and may take you a while to find if you need to confirm something. We do not need more students having to deal with more aggravation in this town while they try to obtain an education. Document! Document! Document!

I beg to differ with you Timothy. The HLC will care if NRTC posted a closing date for registration and actually closed a week early. If Carolyn Sizemore was a good planner then she wouldn't have allowed this mistake to happen. Late registration in all schools are required, look it up.

If one class is full you simply register for another. The point is, registration was closed early despite what was posted. That's simply wrong and unethical.

You need to educate yourself on the Higher Learning Commission. These students have a right to complain to this accrediting body. The school has an obligation to explain to these students why they have changed the registration date. This information should be mentioned on their website. They have a right to be upset and voice their concerns on this website. MSU treated their students terrible and look where that behavior landed them. This website got the truth of what was going on out there. You don't like this discussion then stay off the thread.

In the meantime follow the below link pertaining to the class action lawsuits. This should enlighten you into what happens when a school tries to mislead people.

We went thru this crap on here with posters such as Timothy. It pays to educate yourself on these matters. It is a shame when you are trying to educate yourself into a prospective future career on top of educating yourself on how not to get screwed from the very school your trying to get an education from. You guys are owed an explanation. Don't let them pull the wool over your eyes. Tape record if you have to. That worked out real well for the nurse anesthetist students.

One last thing Timothy. MSU Administrators were educated individuals who obtained college degrees. These same "educated" individuals bullied and intimidated not only employees but the students as well. The former president even wrote a play book on how to obtain power by these tactics. It is called Apex Think by Dr. Charles Polk. These same "educated" administrators misled the students about accreditation. One in particular was recorded intimidating and bullying students. See the below link. So instead of telling these students they are not ready for college and they should stop this bullying and intimidation tactics I suggest you shut the heck up and leave them alone. Otherwise the school in question may find themselves in court.
